Almond Crisps

Chinese New Year is around da corner, about 2 weeks from today and am feeling absolutely excited. Well, besides feeling really excited, am quite tired too. Every year around this time, I would be really busy with works and at da same time busy with house works too. There are so much to clean and clear, seems like it's never ending clearing my stuff. Don't know why, I have loads of stuff and I seriously don't know what should I do with them. Anyways, despite how busy I am, I still bake and make CNY goodies. After all, it's only once a year! :)

Da first batch of my CNY goodies would be Almond Crisps. It's my first time baking Almond Crisps and seriously, I didn't know that it's actually that easy to bake them! All you need is Almond and some pre-mixed Flour, yes, that's all! It's as easy as ABC and am so overjoyed to know that those of them who tasted it recently told me that it's really good! Crispy and aromatic, that's what they commented. Mom is so happy that I am back to baking, as in she doesn't need to buy any Cookies to give away as gift and to be truthful, can save even more $$$ cause it's definitely no cheap to buy those commercial Cookies outside :)

Have you all baked any Cookies lately? Tell me bout it yah... ;)
